Notice to Persons Who Have Prior Felony Convictions
State University of New York (SUNY) policy prohibits SUNY New Paltz admission applications from inquiring into an applicant's prior criminal history. Students who have previously been convicted of a felony are advised that their prior criminal history may impede their ability to complete the requirements of certain academic programs and/or to meet the licensure requirements for certain professions, including the program in Accounting.
Individuals with prior criminal histories are advised to seek advice and guidance from the chair of the academic department regarding the impact of a criminal record on meeting the requirements of the major/professional licensures or certification prior to declaring the major.
